Sinovac Biotech (NASDAQ: SVA) reported Q3 EPS of $0.06, versus ($0.03) reported last year. Revenue for the quarter came in at $28.74 million, versus $16.76 million reported last year.

Mr. Weidong Yin, Chairman, President and CEO of the Sinovac, commented, "Our third quarter revenue rebounded from a slower first half of the year, increasing 71.4% to $28.7 million from $16.8 million from the same period of 2015. The sales improvement was mainly attributable to the newly introduced EV71 vaccine product sales, which contributed approximately $16.5 million to our quarterly revenue, partially offset by Bilive and Anflu revenue decreases."

"Vaccine deliveries resumed in the third quarter after the interpretation of new government regulation was issued in June, however we expect the market for conventional vaccines to take longer to fully recover. Our Bilive sales decline was due to increased sales returns as the delayed supply reduced the shelf life of the vaccine in the channel, while our Anflu sales decline was a result of less vaccine produced during this challenging environment."

"We continued to make progress on our pipeline programs with the continuation of clinical trials of our varicella vaccine, Sabin IPV (sIPV) and pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine (PPV). Heading into the fourth quarter, we expect EV71 vaccine sales to remain our leading revenue contributor," concluded Mr. Yin.
